Mabel Arnold is not just your standard West Ham supporter.

When asked about her 100th birthday celebrations, Mabel replied ""I'd rather have three points than a telegram from HM The Queen!". Now that is dedication.

At the age of 100, Mabel Arnold is certainly one of West Ham United's oldest supporters but what makes her affiliation with the club special is the fact she's spent 82 consecutive years as a season ticket holder.

The chant "We've got Arnold - Mabel Arnold, I just don't think you understand" rang out at the Boleyn Ground last weekend as the Hammers recorded a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Mabel was even pictured with West Ham goalkeeper Adrian, who himself was celebrating his 100th appearance for the club.

Twitter user @WestHam_Central celebrate her 100th with a post to their 22k followers. Brilliant.

Two years ago, season-ticket holder Mabel had the time of her life when West Ham treated her to a behind the scenes present against Sunderland at the Boleyn Ground.

This is brilliant.

Professional Football Clubs take note, West Ham have truly delivered in this instance, treating arguably their oldest supporter to a present they will never forget.

Well done, West Ham United and well done Mabel Arnold.

Respect.
